Our Implant & Periodontology Services

At West Somerville Dental Associates, we want to do much more for you than just the regular services you’d find at any dental practice. Dr. Marhami Alvi and her team are dedicated to providing a one-stop shop for families with a wide variety of needs, whether their smiles require only regular maintenance or they’re struggling with serious oral health issues that need addressing. Implant and periodontal care represent only one cornerstone of our various treatment options, but it’s a crucial one. After all, periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is the most common health condition affecting adults today, and dental implants are the ideal solution for many patients who struggle with one or more missing teeth and seek renewed strength, function, and beauty for their smiles. Here in West Somerville, you’ll enjoy the experienced, comfortable care we provide, as well as the exceptional results that follow. Your complete satisfaction is always our top priority!

Dental Implant Placement & Restoration

Dental implants are a great choice for adults who are seeking more stability and sturdiness from their tooth replacement solution. Instead of simply providing new crowns for your smile, implants go a step further by replicating the root of the tooth as well, which is needed for the jawbone to stay full and healthy throughout the years. By providing this vital foundation for your new tooth or teeth, implants offer patients a transformation that’s durable, natural-looking, and long lasting. Plus, their versatility means that we can use them in a number of personalized situations, whether you’re in need of only a custom-crafted crown to replace a single tooth or an anchored bridge or denture to replenish an entire arch.

Periodontal Treatment

While teeth may steal the show a lot of the time when it comes to the care and maintenance of your smile, your gums also need lots of attention to stay full and healthy throughout the years. At West Somerville Dental Associates, we offer a variety of different services designed to treat issues that can negatively affect your gums, your smile, and your self-confidence. These issues include:

The mild to advanced presence of periodontal disease. Today, more than 75% of Americans struggle with this condition, and while its symptoms may initially seem harmless, serious problems can arise if its presence is left untreated too long. Our team will be sure to keep an eye out for tell-tale signs of periodontal disease during your regular check-ups, and if necessary, we can prescribe a personalized treatment plan designed to restore health and vitality to your smile, which may include more in-depth hygiene appointments, scaling and root planing, or surgical intervention.

 Dr. Bassam El Jamous is our resident implant and periodontal specialist, and he will be sure to treat you and your smile with all the skill, preciseness, and personalization you deserve. At West Somerville Dental Services, we believe in the power of quality dental care. Contact our office today to schedule appointments for you and your family! In addition to West Somerville, we also welcome patients from Everett Medford, Malden, Chelsea, and beyond.
